Publisher's Description

Behind the men who shaped history are the heroes who forever changed it. The Scribe, the fifth and final book in the Sons of Encouragement series, beloved author Francine Rivers illuminates the life of Silas. Like the other Sons of Encouragement, this book tells the story of a lesser-known biblical character who made an impact on eternity. The Scribe tells the story of Silas, the man behind the spotlight who recorded most of the New Testament Scriptures we read today. In classic Francine Rivers style the story lets readers grasp the Scriptures in a whole new light—from a perspective never before imagined. Along the way readers will be captivated by the growth of the early church and the trials Paul suffers before he is martyred for the cause of Christ.

The last installment of Francine Rivers’ Sons of Encouragement series traces the life of Silas, the New Testament scribe and companion of the apostles Peter and Paul. It is based on the minimal sketch we receive written in Scripture (Acts 15, Acts 16, Acts 17), and elaborated by the author to breathe life into the character, revealing emotions, strengths and weaknesses, and a love for the Savior.
The story begins as Silas, who is emotionally, spiritually, and physically exhausted and discouraged after the brutal deaths of Peter and Paul, arrives in the home of Epanetus, a fellow Christian. The local believers treat him somewhat as a celebrity, because he had heard Jesus teach and had witnessed the risen Lord. They encourage him to write down the details of his life, from beginning to end, which begins a journey for Silas that expose his weaknesses and build up his faith.
I enjoyed the story of this man who lived in the shadow of greater men. It brought me right into first-century Christianity, and revealed the very real people who gave up everything to follow the Savior. – Tracey Bonsell, Christian Book Previews.com

    I love this book. It reads like a novel, but with historical accuracy. I learned so much about the loyal followers in the book. I will purchase the rest of the series based on my experience with Silas The Scribe.

    It sent me to scripture to read more. The compelling drive for these men to tell others about Jesus is awesome.

    Rivers does not disappoint with this novella. Her description of Silas and his background intrigued me and made me think more deeply about how persons in the early church actually lived, with all their struggles, fears and joys. Rivers' historical writing is fabulous - she's truly blessed by the Lord. Some great lessons to learn here...
